How to Measure Your Foot

  • Place your feet flat on a piece of paper and mark your longest toe and the back of your foot. It's best to do this standing and wearing socks
  • Measure the length (cm) straight from your longest toe to the back of your foot using a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Use the chart to find your size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent booties I bought these in Cattail brown in my true size of 8.5 and broke them in a couple of weeks ago. They're my first non-lace-up Sorels, and they fit a little narrow, but my feet are wide at the ball of the foot. They are comfortable, cute and sturdy, and I've received many compliments already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! I love these boots! They are super stylish but are also durable to wear out in the winter and snowy/wet conditions. They do run a bit small so maybe go a half size up. Overall a great boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shoe To say I love and swear by sorel boots is an understatement! These are fantastic! The major/black colour is more olive green in person as it appears tan in the photos! But that’s not a bad thing at all! The insole feels like walking on marshmallow clouds! I can walk in these for hours without fear of my feet getting tired or covered in blisters. Their a wee bit baggy around the ankle but that might just be my freakishly honey feet. Definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from L.O.V.E. I agree, go up 1/2 size. These booties definitely fit snugger than the Slim Boots and Joan of Arctic. However, they are amazing. Sorel never lets me down. I purchased the CATTAIL and the leather is as smooth as butter. Can’t wait til Fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Shoe!! Love everything about this boot!! The construction, the fit, and most of all the comfort make it the perfect shoe. I normally wear a 10, but needed a 10.5 in this shoe. It was somewhat difficult to find, as this size sells quickly. I bought it immediately when it became available. I would love to have one in dark tan, maybe even navy. This will be my go-to shoe from now on!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic leather boot that does it all! These are a must have in my closet. I can wear them to meetings, out on the town, and they are so comfortable you can be running around in them all day long! I went with black to match the darker palettes of my wordrobe. I highly recommend these so all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, waterproof and a total win! I will probably buy these in all the colors for my PNW life. They were comfortable enough to wear all day, even the first time I wore them. I’m a size 8.5 in nearly everything Sorel but in these I needed a 9. (The heeled version I fit in 8.5) so I would suggest a half size up. These are nice enough to wear at work and at casual events. I often wear them with my rolled up skinny jeans because who likes wet jeans? I would 100% recommend to everyone, pretty sure my mom already ordered herself a pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Boot for Indoors/Outdoors I bought these boots because I thought they looked like a perfect blend of style and functionality. They are my new go-to boots to wear to work because they easily transition from outdoors to indoors. They broke in easily too, after only a couple days. The only downside is that the color of the boots is different than the picture. I bought the Major,Black style and they are much more green in person. I was hoping for a tan boot but the color is still nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots! These are my new favorite boots! They are so comfortable and go with everything. I want to order some more in different colors because I love these so much. I can wear them all day and I get compliments every time I wear them. I highly recommend these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Everyday Boots I’ve EVER owned! These are hands down the best boots I have owned. I can sit in them for five hours of class, stand in them for eight hours of work, and walk around town in them while staying comfy and cute. I got mud on them and it came off easily with a wet towel. They’re waterproof and perfect for days when we have sun, snow and rain in the PNW. I will be buying a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific boots! My second pair- I already had the tan and got the black. I have high arches and insteps and wide toes, and these fit great and are all-day comfortable. Love that they are rugged yet refined, ready for the city or outdoors, and waterproof for the PNW weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chaperone survival! Got these 2 days before taking 26 kids to Spain. They were comfortable immediately and I have worn them every minute since we got here. We have had every weather you can imagine. Completely waterproof, great style, and so comfortable even with my wider feet/bunion issue. We walk around 20,000 steps a day here. I want to get them in every color now. These boots literally have gotten me through the trip. ¡Gracias, Sorel! ❤️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish These boots are perfect for every day, but especially in the rain. They're built well and comfortable enough to wear all day. I definitely recommend them and I'm thinking about getting another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boot, ever These boots are 100% waterproof as claimed and keep you comfortable, warm, and dry all day. I did order a half size up to be safe since they are slip-ons, and I wear a thicker cushiony sock with them. I wear them for anything from walking my dog in rainy Washington weather, to mild hikes on gravel, in mud or light snow, and paved trails. They have great traction. And after I wipe them down I’ll even wear them when I’m going out and want to look cute. I’ve never owned such a versatile, high quality shoe and I’m definitely buying more colors soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Boots This Year I have the Major and Black colors of this boot, and I love both. The bottom of the shoe has great tread for winter weather, and they keep my feet really warm. The shoe feels slightly narrow, but I have a wide foot. It stretches out with a few wears. I wear a 9.5 and it fits true to size. The Major color is a bit more taupe than shown.
Date published: 2018-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Winter Boot I purchased the Oatmeal color and sprayed them with a suede stain repellent to keep them light and clean during rainy season. They fit comfortably on the first wear and I love the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favroite shows I purchased a 7.5 and normally wear a 7. I should have just purchased the 7 but they were out of my size, and I was impatient, so I went up a half size. They were too big, but no fault of the shoe, they run true to size. I just wear a thicker sock and they work perfectly. I love them! They are very comfortable and I could wear them out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic boots!! I am so in love with these boots. I got the Major color and they go with everything. I have very wide feet and was super nervous about the sizing based on reviews. I ordered my normal boot size (an 8, I usually get 7.5 in sneakers or flats) and they were snug for the first couple of wears but I committed to breaking them in as another half size would definitely be too big. After about 6 wears I could comfortably wear them with merino wool socks. It's been a month and the leather has broken in perfectly. I also have a high arch and these are super supportive. Absolutely love these on rainy days especially!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not True to Size, Runs Small I really like the bootie, however, it runs too narrow and not true to size. I might reorder the next size, but I definitely have to return this one.
Date published: 2018-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful shoe Ah! I love Sorel. Beautiful shoe that does well in the snow. My only complaint is that it is a little small - not terrible, but hard to wear thick socks (which, why wouldn't you in the winter?). Took too long for my liking to break a pair of shoes in. But if you are willing to spend the time to break them in, totally worth it!
Date published: 2018-01-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design Flaw Similar to another review, my heel tab broke after one wear. I sent the boots back under a warranty claim and Sorel claimed the issue was not fixable. It was very disappointing because the boot itself was very cute and well fitting, but I hesitate to order another pair in case the same issue occurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Boots These boots are my absolute favorite! They go well with both leggings and jeans, and are super comfortable! I wear them to work with jeans and they are stylish enough for my office. I will definitely be purchasing another pair in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Comfy I absolutely love this boot! I typically border between 9.5 and 10...I went with a 10. Love it! I wanted a boot that wouldn't cramp my toes with a wool sock and it fits perfect! This boot is comfortable from the first wear. I want to re-order in Black!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality I was so excited to receive these boots for Christmas because they were so cute in the pictures. I went to pull them on and right away the heel strap snapped and broke. Didn't even get to wear them once. Very poor quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found MY boot I'm a comfort-over-everything kind of girl. So when I stumbled on these cozy (yet classy!) boots, I was immediately sold. Three weeks later, it's embarrassing the number of times I've worn them. I live in Oregon where waterproof is important, but work in an office where being presentable is also important–this boot is perfect for both. Note: I got the Rockwood red color and can't stop staring them. Beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from first, yet excellent pair of Sorels I saw these boots online during the Black Friday sale, and after reading the reviews, I was thoroughly convinced to purchase them. I love them! They are more outdoorsy of a style than I am used to, but they are so comfortable. I love the footbed, and wore them immediately with complete comfort. The toe area does need to be stretched out a tad, but what a great boot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snug fit I was in between a 8.5 and a 9. The 9 felt loose and clunky so I went with the 8.5 but am unable to wear thick socks with the 8.5. If you plan to wear them in the winter size up!
Date published: 2017-12-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but HUGE These were so nice, but felt 2 sizes bigger than I ordered. I had to return them because they were so huge. I have other Sorels in a size 8, so I expected these to work. Sad. :(
Date published: 2017-12-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shoe of the season! The rich color, the comfort, and the style have definitely made these the first shoe I reach for. Love to roll up my pants a bit to allow a fun sock to peak through. Considering purchasing other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! I love these boots. They work with a lot of outfits. I was a little worried how the elastic on the sides would look in person but haven’t minded it at all. They are comfortable and have worn them all day to work. I’m excited to try them once the snow comes. I originally bought a size 8 but returned them and had to order a size 8.5 from a different site as they were sold out on this site. The 8.5 were still a little tight to get on but overall fit better in the toe area. I usually wear a size 8 but in boots and narrow toed shoes I tend to buy up a half size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Shoe I absolutely love these booties, they are super chic and durable. I have paired them with a variety of outfits from skirts to jeans and all are versatile. Love the fact they are also waterproof. Would definitely recommend and repurchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short boot I like this boot so much, I bought it in two colors! It is so comfortable I can wear it all day running errands. I have had some injuries to my feet in the past so I am very picky about fit and comfort, and these fit perfectly while looking cute with my jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots!!!! These boots are awesome! I sized up a half size to be sure I had plenty of space with thick socks! They are so comfortable right out of the box and are super stylish. I loved them so much I got two colors. I get compliments on them every time I wear them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE BOOTS I have been searching for a “Chelsea” style boot for awhile when I stumbled across these. Read the reviews and decided to order them. So happy with my purchase! They are comfortable, stylish and I warm! Ordered a half size up to wear with thicker socks and even without thicker socks they are still perfect! Only took two wears to stretch them a little to fit my foot. Couldn’t be happier! Plan to order more from Sorel in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fall boot! These boots are both comfortable and stylish! The shaft height of the boot is just perfect for skinny jeans. I wore them all day without any discomfort and would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect casual fall boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I have really bad feet and struggle to find comfort that will get me through the day. I’m a teacher which make it doubly hard. These shoes are amazing! They are so comfortable that I not only stood the whole day but then was able to walk home (it’s far). I can’t remember the last time I was able to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Love these boots, seem true to size. The toe box is a little on the narrow side while the ankle is very wide but that fits with the style of the boot. A little slip in the heel because the ankle opening is so wide. Very cute and love that you can wear them in any weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM!!!! This was my first Sorel purchase, and I'm so glad I did! These boots are awesome! I bought these to take to NYC to have a comfortable pair to walk in all day and also be warm and waterproof. They are so comfortable! I will say I normally wear a 7 and had to get a 7.5 because I have a wide foot. But they fit great! I got the Major, black color, and they go with pretty much anything. I will definitely be purchasing from Sorel again!
Date published: 2017-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought these wanting an all purpose casual boot and that is what I got. I live in a rainy climate and these boots have done great in the rain for not being “rain boots”. Plus they are super cute and go with everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from leather wrapped heels are not waterproof agree with other reviews on snug fit but mine did stretch to fit perfectly offering great ankle support. so warm & comfortable and I am a picky shoe buyer. main complaint is that the leather wrapped heel is NOT WATERPROOF and mine are very stained. I am surprised that I did not see anyone else comment on this. If anyone has any tips on how to remove stains or protect for the future would greatly appreciate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flat boot I was looking for flat everyday boots (good for running errands and commuting), which is much harder than it sounds like it should be. These boots provide support and are very comfortable. They do run a little small. (I'm normally a 7.5 with socks and am happy with the 7 here.)
